Wedding Shower Planning Blues Be Gone!

| Family

Summer wedding season is coming to an end as the beginning of fall is around the corner. Fall weddings are becoming more and more popular with the rich autumn colors, leaves and unique blooms during those months.

With fall weddings come wedding festivities: showers, bachelorette bashes and engagement engagements. If you have the honor of hosting or co-hosting a wedding shower, you have probably realized it can be overwhelming navigating all the details.

Just hop on etsy to search "wedding shower invites" and consider the budget game over. Everyone will love the hand-delivered Paris-themed invite jewelry box with an audio component. No one will be eating at the shower, however, as there was no money left for food and drink.

So while there is a time and place for amazing invites, there is also a wonderful plethora of budget-friendly solutions, fun and crowd-friendly games, as well as unique favors that your guests might just keep. Let us know your favorite shower go-to's womanistas!
